Precision Wind Technology - PWT
Marty's background is basically engineering orientated, he has been living on alternate energy and living an alternate lifestyle since 1990 after quitting the Construction industry. Precision Wind Technology came into being in late1995 and has been supplying quality alternate energy equipment since that time.
PWT were authorised Australian importers and service agents for Southwest Windpower products, including Air Marine, since 1995 but quit SWWP and their products as of December 2008 due to unresolvable problems with the manufacturer..
Having built a couple of yachts Marty owned a self-completed yacht, an S&S 34 named "Shanty", for 17 years. During that time "Shanty" covered over 30000 ocean miles both racing and cruising. Cruising the South Pacific, Marty lived aboard "Shanty" for over 6 years, the travels took in 2 trips to New Zealand and many of the South Pacific Islands. All of these passages were made short or single handed.
"Shanty" has now been sold and a new 38', Kurt Hughes, strip plank - epoxy, catamaran was constructed. That boat has now been sold and he is now building a Farrier F-36 trimaran. Progress of the construction of "Kiss" will be published in our "News and views" page.
On the land side of things, PWT has been based in the Gold Coast Hinterland operating from its fully alternate, solar powered premises. However, a new, purpose built premises has been constructed at his home on a 6 acre property, "Yarrageh", at Crystal Creek in Northern NSW. This property is being set up as a fully alternate powered, grid interactive, alternative lifestyle, "how to do it", or, "how not to do it", testing ground. As time goes on we will be testing various pieces of alternate equipment including solar panels, wind turbines, inverters, composting toilets and horticulture techniques. Weed problems will be tackled not with poison but by pasture improvement to allow native grasses to choke out the weeds. Erosion problems are being tackled with Vetiver grass. All our findings and progress at "Yarrageh" will be published in our "News and Views" page.
At PWT we don't only sell alternate energy and marine equipment we live the life we promote because that's just the way we are. We are passionate about sailing and all things alternate and take a practical approach to both, based mainly on our own experiences. As with all things promoted by Precision Wind Technology, we have either used the product ourselves in our normal everyday lives or we have heard only good reports about a particular product. Some things that have been introduced to our fully alternate premises have proved to be less than satisfactory, therefore you will not see that product here, however, if you require a specific item not seen here, please contact us as we are committed to serving you and giving you the product of your choice at the right price. Above all, we want you to be happy with the goods you purchase or the system you install and this is only possible if you use good quality, reliable equipment.
Our site is always being updated so keep your eyes peeled.
Have a great day and enjoy the world of PWT.
Precision Wind Technology.
